The 18z GFS shows gusts of just over 60mph for Friday evening,

GFS has thrown some interesting weather up Sunday night into Monday. Sadly at this time period the GFS has proven to be totally unreliable so I'm not getting excited. On it's recent performances I would only take it seriously at T48

how much rain are we expecting from this latest Atlantic blast(s), just asking as I am taking a boat on a quite flood prone river for a week. (East Midlands)

Thanks

Yesterday 71mph was reported from Tay bridge as the Met Office issued a wind warning for most of Scotland. Today to Wednesday looks windy for most of the UK with widespread gusts mainly being 40 to 50mph and reaching just over 60mph in some places.

Looking very windy later and overnight tonight as a deepening depression crosses Scotland with the strongest winds on the southern flank, gusts look to be in the 60-70mph range for some places, Met have just issued a warning for wind. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=map&map=Warnings&zoom=5&lon=-3.50&lat=55.50&fcTime=1427670000

Looking quite potent for tonight gusts into the 60's possible XCweather has us under 67 mph lol. A slight easing round 7 and then back up to the mid sixties mid morning onwards to early evening.

Conditions starting to deteriorate here already !!.

 

Surprised there isn't more interest in this system.

 

Far as I'm aware it's quite unusual to see 60 mph gusts being forecast on the models and on TV forecasts for inland areas epcs the Midlands. ?? 

 

 

 

 

Edit: I would also like to add yesterday's system brought quite a number of branches down in the roads and few telephone lines over this way.

sorry mildmuck been lurking.

 

xcw has the strong winds here tuesday in rush hour pretty worrying if they are really strong.  Listening to Jo Farrow suggesting possible 70's hope everyone stays safe.

going to be very interesting period rainfall too.  Met got us under yellow for both rain/wind with very low impact suggesting met not overly confident of strong winds.

Well the rain is struggling across the Pennines so I'm not expecting vast amounts. Wind should be the main theme I think. Looking at the warning the rain is just for peak district area northwards. Going to be a classic rain shadow effect tonight.

Honestly I do not expect much but there could be some disruption with fallen trees.

Is it possible for there still to be upgrades in potency or is it pretty much nailed on?

wasnt as bad as l was expecting, 62mph winds here in hereford.. tho it didnt sound like it... l guess the bin men had their job cut out for them today as its recycling day today.. my guess is sacks were blown everywhere considering my neighbours wheelie bin went walkies (or should l say "took flying lessions" since it ended up scaling 2 fences and was found an estate over).

 

also a friends garden in kington was pretty much totally devistated, they still havent found their cloths line.

Tonight's GFS shows a narrow band of very strong winds crossing the North Midlands and Northern England midday tomorrow. Gusts may reach 60+ in exposed places. Of course all depends on how the low actually develops.
